William Beatty-Kingston in Bucharest

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 119:

At the very height of the  "fast and furious" fashionable season in Bucharest, one admitted to the penetralia of Boyar society may attend half-a-hundred evening parties without being called upon to make pretence, amid a ceaseless buzz of small-talk, of listening to "a little music."
